Many studies focused on the protective effects of flavanols such as catechin against. Introduction. Previous investigations have demonstrated that heparin has antithrombotic activity when administered orally in rat thrombosis models (1, 2).Several studies suggest that heparins are found on the endothelial surface within minutes following oral administration with minimal observed evidence of . Heparin cofactor II (HCII) is a serine protease inhibitor (serpin) that has been shown to be a predictor of decreased atherosclerosis in the elderly and protective against atherosclerosis in mice. HCII inhibits thrombin in vitro and HCII-thrombin complexes have been detected in human plasma. Telford AM, Wilson C.
